A puppy who is a poet knows he has joined the right human family when they choose to name him Thinker. Seven-year-old Jace is a poet too and these appealing poems detail their dialogue as they share ‘word-music’ through their poetry. Ehsan Abdollahi’s collage illustrations, depicting an African-American family, are an attractive complement to the variety of verse forms which culminate in ‘Thinker’s Rap’.
